Leaning Wit It

This is fun. (Thanks wayne&wax.) Atlanta-based rappers Dem Franchize Boys have this video to their song "Lean Wit It, Rock Wit It." The video's fun, with the catchy dance that might challenge the mighty Macarena...

What really gets me going is the fashion aesthetic of the video. I came of age during NWA, Eazy-E, Geri curls, big jackets, parachute pants, unlaced high-top sneakers, chains, earrings, etc. "MC Hammer" and 2 Legit 2 Quit (pictured). It's just a nostalgia trip for me to see these crazy young kids doing it again.

So in the spirit of the RunDMC/Aerosmith protomashup of "Walk This Way," we might appreciate this mashup: Dem Franchize Boyz vs. Korn, "Coming Undone Wit It"

Fantastic. I had a disagreement with someone recently about whether MC Hammer rocked the harem pants. I now see that I was wrong.

Yes, I think it should be clear that he leaned wit tha pants, but he also rocked wit tha pants.

Glad to be of service.
